The University of Arkansas will waive the undergraduate admission application fee for any in-state student from Oct. 18-19 as part of the school’s Free Application Days event.
The program is a partnership with the Provost’s Office and the Office of Admissions, and also includes test-optional admission for students in the state to apply and be admitted without an ACT or SAT score.
Terry Martin, interim provost for the UA, said the idea is to help prospective students start early so that they have plenty of time to apply for scholarships, complete financial aid, plan for housing and sign up for orientation.
“Having everything set early ensures that a student takes advantage of every opportunity,” said Martin.
Students should go to apply.uark.edu to begin an application, and click the Free Application Days box at the end of the application to take advantage of the program.
